Ukraine wins it with a late goal from Artem Dovbyk. They are through to their first quarter-finals where they will face England

In stoppage time of extra-time Ukraine take the lead. Artem Dovbyk has scored his first ever goal for Ukraine and he has surely won it for Ukraine! What a time to score. Sweden 1-2 Ukraine

The clock is ticking for Ukraine, if Sweden manage to get to penalties with 10 men you suspect they will have the edge in this game. Sweden 1-1 Ukraine

The show goes on. We are heading for the third set of extra-time in four games.  Sweden v Ukraine is the fourth EURO 2020 last 16 tie to go to extra-time (also Italy v Austria, Croatia v Spain & France v Switzerland), the most ever in a single knockout round in the competition, overtaking three that went the distance in the 2008 quarter-final.
